Ohio State, Ezekiel Elliott the betting favorites for national title and Heisman

0 Comments

As we continue to inch toward the beginning of a new college football season, the odds continue to be updated. With quarterback Everett Golson transferring to Florida State was reason enough to take another look at some of the betting odds for the national championship and Heisman Trophy pictures, but it continues to be Ohio State and Buckeye running back Ezekiel Elliott at the top of the betting lines as the favorites in 2015.

Ohio State still has the best odds to win the national championship with Bovada listing the Buckeyes at 7/2 odds. With the loaded roster returning in 2015 that seems top make sense, however history would suggest it would be wiser to count on making money with another team. There have been just two back-to-back crowned national champions since 1990 and the last time a team from the Big Ten won consecutive national titles was in 1940 and 1941 (Minnesota). Alabama is always a top favorite, and the Crimson Tide are sitting ins second with 7/1 odds, followed by TCU (10/1), Auburn (12/1) and Florida State (12/1).

As for the Heisman Trophy, Elliott’s strong surge en route to a national championship has made him the betting favorite with 6/1 odds. LSU’s Leonard Fournette follows with 15/2 odds. Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott, Georgia running back Nick Chubb and TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin each have 8/1 odds according to Bovada. Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones (12/1), Braxton Miller (25/1) and J.T. Barrett (28/1) each have listed Heisman odds as well if you want to place an early bet before knowing which of the three may be starting in the fall.
